Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

fly a cloudhopper

I would love to do this, but I think $$$ might get in the way.

It looks like a great way to gain some “space” around me!

eat clam chowder in sourdough bread

Yep, right down on Fisherman’s Wharf. Next time I’ll have a friend along ;-)

Learn the words to every Jimmy Buffett song
At least I know 'em enough to sing along with all of 'em ;-)

I was already a Parrothead when I started working at Captain’s Cove in San Diego. Captain’s Cove is a nautical gift shop in the Seaport Village shopping center down on the waterfront.

I had a great job where I got to play with the tourists and listen to Buffett and a few local artists all day long on the store’s sound system. I have every Buffett album ever released and I know all the songs by heart ;-)

Just listen and learn…
